Having been in the real estate business since I was 20 years old, I have seen many, many home buyers come across my path who are all looking for one thing in common: finding a great deal on a home. So what exactly makes a purchase a "great deal"? To some, finding a great deal on a home in Jacksonville, NC is nothing more than getting a home priced below fair market value. There has been a high number of foreclosures sold over the past few years in Onslow County, so finding homes for sale below what you might expect to pay has not been difficult. There is a lot to consider, however when you are choosing a home to buy at such a low price.
